look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a dark brown with ruby highlights into a Duvel tulip. Smallish head fades to a ring with spotty lacing.

Smell consists of dark fruit and sweet with some booze.

Taste of sweet dark fruit, rum raisin, fig and toffee. Dark cinnamon bread and ginger snap cookie. Nice warming alcohol and Belgian yeast.

Mouthfeel is thick and full.

Very nice Belgian double times two. Glad to have tried this one.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: Poured a nice brownish-red with fine white foam and lacing

S: Bouquet hints of fruit, copper pennies, herbs

T: foreward taste slightly hoppy with a hint of malty, balanced by the astringent/acididty of the carbonation - clean finish
M: Highly carbonated which contributes to its mild acidic/bitter taste, clean finish. good accompaniment to cheese, meat plate, barbecue

Overall - great beer, would definitely stock up on this for the summer bbq season

Serving type: bottle
